Claire Konkol, a two-year-old, was put on camera by her father as a birthday present for her mother.

Claire is charming in the one-and-a-half minute video, wishing her mother Happy Birthday and telling her that “you are beautiful”; “you are amazing;” and “You’re the best mommy ever.

“Usually my wife’s birthday is a pretty big deal so I try to do something new,” Dan Konkel,¬†28, of Bridgewater, N. J., told¬†GoodMorningAmerica.com.

Konkol, a professional photographer, recorded the video for his wife’s birthday.

Claire also lauded her mother’s cooking.

There was a bit of preparation for the video, said Konkol.

“I sat her down in the living room and we had a conversation for about 40 minutes about Mommy and toys and food,” Konkel said.

Konkol uploaded to the video to his wife’s iPad and put a note on it that said “Hey, watch me.”

“She said it was the best birthday present she ever got,” Konkel said.
